Rotary club members are business and professional leaders who volunteer in their communities and promote world understanding and peace.
The goal of each Rotary club is to recruit a diverse representation of occupations within the club. This helps the club represent a cross-section of the community and promotes a far-reaching influence. Rotary clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

- The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
